Blackface has issued an apology to his former Plantashun Boiz band member, 2face Idibia, over his allegation of song theft.
This was after 2face withdrew his N50million defamation suit against Blackface and an out-of-court settlement was agreed by both of them.
The statement of apology from Blackface reads:
“Having consulted with my Solicitors, I do hereby revoke all allegations of intellectual property theft and career sabotage previously made against Mr. Innocent Idibia and Mr. Efe Omorogbe.
“These statements were erroneously made under misapprehension as to their accuracy, due to prevailing circumstances at the time. I have been advised on the inaccuracy of my previous allegations and retract them entirely.
“I undertake to refrain from making any such subsequent statements against the persons of Mr. Innocent Idibia and Mr. Efe Omorogbe in future”.
An agreement was reached between in the presence of 2baba’s manager, Efe Omorogbe, and Black Face’s lawyer, Manny Enajeroh, in Lagos on Wednesday, at the Ikeja High Court Alternative Dispute Resolution Centre (ADR) section.
The development was confirmed by Blackface’s solicitor, Manny Enajeroh, who hinted at a possibility of the artists recording a track together.
“That would ultimately depend on the parties, but I see no reason why that can’t happen. Their differences were purely professional resulting from certain inefficiencies in the copyright system. There is no longer an issue of stealing songs so I believe the future of both artistes is bright,” he said.
